During rainfall, all water is channeled from the roof via the guttering system and downpipes direct into underground storage tanks. Upon entry, the water is passed through a sand filter to remove dirt, debris and sediment.

When needed, the water stored in the tanks can then be pumped back into the property for use.

It’s important to ensure that any water storage tank installed on your property is of an appropriate size, as failure to get this right can lead to the system becoming redundant or ineffective.

Tank size is usually calculated based on average rainfall for the area, size of the building, number of occupants and expected water usage.
